chroot in /usr and initrd booting
I have filed #146208 against shellutils almost a month ago. It's about
the chroot binary being in /usr/sbin instead of /sbin and I didn't get any
reaction so far.
In short, when booting an initrd, after the pivot_root a chroot has to
be done into the new root. If /usr is on a separate partition, chroot
isn't available, boot fails.
I'm tempted to raise the severity on that bug (it's normal for now), but
I'm a bit reluctant to do that to a base package in deep freeze. Though
it would be nice to be able to boot woody just with the tools in /bin
and /sbin. Any thoughts on what to do?
